NETFLIX SECURES GLOBAL EXCLUSIVE OVERALL DEAL WITH ALEX PINA, THE CREATOR BEHIND INTERNATIONAL HIT "LA CASA DE PAPEL"

Madrid, July 12th, 2018 - Netflix announced today an exclusive overall deal with boundary-breaking, award-winning producer and writer Alex Pina, the creative mind behind the most watched non-English show on Netflix, La Casa de Papel (Money Heist).

Under the terms of the deal, Pina, founder of production company Vancouver Media and also the creative powerhouse behind emblematic series such as 'Locked up - Vis a Vis', 'The Ship - El Barco' or 'Paco's Men - Los hombres de Paco', will produce new series and projects exclusively for Netflix's 125 million members around the world.

Erik Barmack, Vice President, International Originals, Netflix said: "We are thrilled to announce our overall deal with Alex Pina and to be working with such a talented creator and production team. We have full confidence that Alex will continue to break boundaries with his unique vision and storytelling capturing audiences worldwide."

Álex Pina added: "Working alongside Netflix is a dream come true. We are living in a moment where series are becoming one of the most relevant cultural movements ever.

The possibility of reaching the last corner on the planet and building a world where content of all languages can travel globally, is to be part of the dream of thousands of creatives from around the world; productions coming from small places in the world that today can reach everyone. We had to be there, beside Netflix, as part of this revolutionary challenge."

After the global success of Part 1 and 2 of the Spanish heist phenomenon, up next as part of the deal is the start of production of La Casa de Papel Part 3, slated for release in 2019, as well as other projects written and produced by Pina. Currently in development is Sky Rojo, a female-action drama that is set to start production in 2019.
